Enhanced natural beauty can help any bride or groom feel confident on their wedding day, and Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery’s pre-wedding cosmetic treatments can give you the look you deserve. Keep reading for the ideal cosmetic treatment timeline for your wedding. 


Schedule 1 week before your wedding day

When preparing for your wedding day, achieving a flawless, radiant complexion is often a top priority. The HydraFacial is an ideal pre-wedding cosmetic treatment to ensure your skin looks its best. This treatment uses vortex fusion technology combined with gentle suction to loosen and extract debris from the pores while simultaneously delivering intense hydration and essential antioxidants to the skin. 

At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, you can also opt for the Platinum HydraFacial, which includes the benefits of lymphatic drainage. This addition helps reduce puffiness and enhances facial contours, giving you a more defined and fresh appearance.

Benefits for Brides and Grooms

For brides and grooms, the HydraFacial offers several benefits:

  • Deep Cleansing: The unique vacuum-like wand opens pores to remove impurities and dead skin cells effectively.
  • Enhanced Hydration: Essential hydration and nutrients are infused into the skin, leaving it plump, hydrated, and vibrant.
  • Smooth Texture: Regular treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other texture-related issues, making makeup application smoother and more flawless.
  • Radiant Glow: The antioxidant infusion brightens and revitalizes the skin, ensuring you have a natural, healthy glow on your big day.

What to Expect from Treatment

During a HydraFacial treatment, you’ll experience a comfortable and invigorating process that includes cleansing, exfoliating, and extracting impurities without irritation. The pre-wedding cosmetic treatment procedure is relatively quick, typically lasting about 30 minutes, making it a convenient option even for those with busy pre-wedding schedules.


Schedule 3 weeks before your wedding day

For those looking to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles before their big day, Botox injections at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery offer an excellent solution. Botox is a neurotoxin injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, primarily in the forehead, around the eyes, and between the brows. It’s one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments for enhancing a youthful appearance without downtime.

Benefits for Brides and Grooms

Botox offers several aesthetic benefits for soon-to-be-married couples:

  • Reduces Appearance of Aging: Effectively diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a smoother and more youthful facial appearance.
  • Enhances Self-confidence: With fewer visible signs of aging, brides and grooms often feel more confident and radiant.
  • Non-invasive with No Downtime: As a non-surgical treatment, Botox requires no recovery time, allowing you to continue your wedding preparations without interruption.

What to Expect from Treatment

Botox injections involve quick, small injections with minimal discomfort and no need for local anesthetic. Dr. Chernoff’s training in precise injection techniques and deep understanding of facial anatomy allows for a highly personalized plan unique to your facial structure for natural-looking results. While some results are immediate, the full effects of Botox typically develop within 14 days and last for several months.

Lip Filler

Schedule 4-6 weeks before your wedding day

As you prepare for your wedding, considering cosmetic enhancements like lip fillers can add that extra touch of beauty to your smile. Lip filler treatment involves the injection of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, into the lips to enhance volume and shape. Dr. Chernoff uses Juvéderm, a smooth gel injectable that is FDA-approved for cosmetic improvement. It’s designed to provide a natural look and feel while improving the overall appearance of the lips.

Benefits for Brides and Grooms

Lip fillers offer several benefits for those preparing for their wedding day:

  • Enhanced Volume: Adds fullness to thin lips, creating a more balanced and symmetrical appearance.
  • Defined Shape: Helps define the contours of the lips, enhancing the overall facial aesthetics.
  • Natural Appearance: Juvéderm is designed to feel natural under the skin, ensuring that your lips not only look better but also feel natural when smiling and talking.
  • Boosted Confidence: Improved lip aesthetics can boost self-esteem, ensuring you feel your best on your special day.

What to Expect from Treatment

Each treatment begins with a thorough consultation to tailor the procedure to your specific aesthetic goals. The injection process is relatively quick, lasting between 15 to 45 minutes, and is performed with minimal discomfort. While some patients might experience mild swelling or bruising, these side effects typically subside quickly and can be managed with ice.

Following your procedure, you’ll visit our office for a series of follow-up appointments to track your progress. You can expect your results to last several months, after which we can refresh your treatment for a continued effect.

Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty 

Schedule 2-3 months before your wedding day

An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a transformative cosmetic surgery that can significantly enhance facial aesthetics, particularly around the eyes. This pre-wedding cosmetic treatment involves the surgical correction of droopy eyelids and puffy under-eye bags to target sagging skin, excess fatty pads, and fine wrinkles around the eyes. 

Benefits for Brides and Grooms

Eyelid surgery offers several aesthetic and functional benefits:

  • Improved Facial Harmony: By correcting sagging upper eyelids and reducing under-eye bags, an eyelid lift can help balance facial features, offering a more youthful and alert appearance.
  • Enhanced Vision: For those with severely droopy eyelids, this surgery can improve the field of vision, making daily activities and special events more enjoyable.
  • Reduced Signs of Aging: The procedure helps diminish the appearance of fine wrinkles and tightens the skin around the eyes.

What to Expect from Treatment

Dr. Chernoff’s expertise in eyelid surgery ensures a high standard of care. Utilizing a proprietary laser technique, Dr. Chernoff precisely removes excess skin and fat. For the lower eyelids, laser exfoliation may be used post-surgery to stimulate collagen growth, shrink the skin, and improve texture. Post-operative recovery typically involves some swelling and bruising, but pain is minimal and manageable with prescribed medications. Patients are advised on proper care to ensure the best healing process.
